shopping list's too long...

I was writing my shopping list before I went to the supermarket on
Saturday and I wrote lettuce, and the thought went through my head "Now
that's lla llaethyg in Brithenig".  Suddenly I knew I had to work out what
all the rest were.  An afternoon's work discovered about half the things I
buy could be translated offhand from words I already know or have on file,
but I still have find things like "vegemite", "salami", and "weet-bix"!  I
think conlanging is its own punishment!

Has anyone else had this happen to them?
